College football rankings: Iowa moves up to No. 10 ahead of matchup with Maryland

The Terps visit a top-10 team this week.

Maryland's next opponent is now No. 10 in the Associated Press Poll and No. 12 in the latest Coaches Poll, as the Iowa Hawkeyes moved up in both despite not playing a game this weekend.

Iowa is now being seriously considered as a College Football Playoff contender, and rightfully so. The Hawkeyes are undefeated ahead of Maryland's visit to Kinnick Stadium on Saturday.

In the Big Ten, Ohio State hammered Rutgers 49-7, and J.T. Barrett looked like his old self again as he assumed the starting role for the first time this season. Similarly, Michigan State took care of business Indiana 52-26 behind . Michigan had a bye week, where the Wolverines looked to recover after last week's last-second loss against the Spartans.

In the ACC, Clemson absolutely annihilated Miami, and is now the team to beat in the conference after Georgia Tech upset Florida State on an outrageous blocked-field goal-touchdown.
